Description:

Full title - THE GENTLEMAN'S RECREATION: IN FOUR PARTS. VIZ. HUNTING, HAWKING, FOWLING, FISHING. WHEREIN THESE GENEROUS EXERCISES ARE LARGELY TREATED OF, AND THE TERMS OF ART FOR HUNTING AND HAWKING MORE AMPLY ENLARGED THAN HERETOFORE. ALSO THE METHOD OF BREEDING AND MANAGING A HUNTING-HORSE. WHERETO IS PREFIX'D, A LARGE SCULPTURE, GIVING EASIE DIRECTIONS FOR BLOWING THE HORN; AND OTHER SCULPTURES INSERTED, PROPER TO EACH RECREATION. THE FOURTH EDITION, TO WHICH IS NOW ADDED, A PERFECT ABSTRACT OF ALL THE FOREST-LAWS, AND OF EVERY PARTICULAR ACT OF PARLIAMENT SINCE MAGNA CHARTA TO THIS TIME, AS DO ANY WAY RELATE TO THE SEVERAL KINDS OF GAME ABOVE MENTION'D. London: Printed by J. Dawks, for N. Rolls, in Petty-Canons-Hall, in St. Paul's Church-yard, 1697. Modern rebinding. Hardcover: H 19.25cm x L 12.75cm. Late 19th century marbled paper boards rubbed, several patches of abrasion to rear board's surface paper, wear along board edges but with corners reinforced with triangular brown tabs. Spine rebacked in modern red buckram cloth with bright gilt stamped bars at ends, gilt stamped lettering near top, and some leaf vignette above center. Spine and tabbed corners are recent work (August 2015) by Norris Bookbinding Company of Greenwood, Mississippi whose re-stitching is always impeccable but their exterior design aesthetic is a bit wanting. Text block's top edge gilt (likely contemporary to the 19th century boards and certainly not original to book) with interior leaves having significantly shallower top margin than bottom margin and thus text block was trimmed too upon that initial re-binding. New white front and rear endpapers also added by Norris; new ffep immediately followed by original frontispiece which is laid-down/mounted on a toned leaf likely done on that initial re-binding; likewise toned rear flyleaf probably dates to re-binding too as its has a different texture than the original text leaves. Some shallow edge chipping, varied toning, foxing, and some occasional staining to text leaves. Collation/pagination as follows: [new fp], [new ffep], [frontis "The Gentlemans Recreation"], [title leaf], [1-4], 1-88, 85-88, 89-133, 114, 135-138, [partial Hawking-Faulconry foldout plate], 1-91, 2, [partial Fowling foldout plate], 3-41, 40-41, 44-45, 44-45, 48-78, 1-2, [complete Angling foldout plate], 3-71, [1], 1-76, [77-78], 79-90, [1-8], [Manwood's Forest Laws title leaf], 1-101, [blank verso], [rear fly], [new rfep], [new rp]. Several notations in antiquarian ink on title page and on Hunting-Part I title; lacks the large foldout Hunting plate with no stub evident so plate was probably not present at time of rebinding; Hawking-Faulconry and Fowling plates retain their first (i.e. spine) panels only with their foldout panels (i.e. those parts of the leaves that extend past the text block fore-edge) lacking; Angling plate complete but torn at its fold; some margin marks in pencil at Angling section's page 39. This copy has two of the pagination errors cited in Harvard's online library catalog clarified as "Errors in paging: 85-88 repeated in numbering, 134 mis-numbered 114" but Harvard does not cite the Fowling section's printing errors in page numbers; the printer's errors are the page numbers only and all text is sequentially correct and text on the affected pages/leaves is not duplicated. Bound-in as book's last 101 page section (with its own unpaged title leaf and year-earlier imprint) is: AN ABRIDGMENT OF MANWOOD'S FORREST LAWS. AND OF ALL THE ACTS OF PARLIAMENT MADE SINCE; WHICH RELATE TO HUNTING, HAWKING, FISHING, OR FOWLING. London: Printed for Nath. Rolls, at his auction-house in Petty-Canons in St. Paul's-Church-yard, 1696. Still an early edition of an important title among early British sporting books listed in all major bibliographies regarding falconry, hunting, and fishing. Bookseller Inventory #
